Amy MacPherson Amy MacPherson- Artist

My paintings take inspiration from the day to day, the mundane and the rundown. I am interested in architecture and more recently my work has focused on residential areas. I aim to turn something ordinary, something with which we are very familiar into something extrardinary. I enjoy the contrast of the organic and the manmade and am interested in using both elements in conjuction with one another within a composition. I highlight the contrast between the natural and the manmade by depicting them both in very different media. The buildings all tend to be painted in a rather "normal" way whereas the collection of many different natural elements are collaged on to the surface of the painting bringing the normal to life. I enjoy being experimental with media but I work primarily with oils and with collage.
